Fortune's Fool (Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms, Book 3)

Fortune's Fool - Mercedes Lackey Combine "The Little Mermaid" with "The Firebird" and you'll get "Fortune's Fool" -- but this book has a twist.As with Lackey's other 500 Kingdoms novels, the fairytale Tradition is always trying to interfere and direct things along a certain path. This time, though, seventh son Prince Sasha is also a Songweaver, who can point the Tradition down a different path and coax it to go that way. When he falls in love with the Sea King's daughter, Ekaterina, the Tradition probably has a fit of apoplexy as it tries to direct the two stories appropriately.Light and entertaining reading that Lackey fans are sure to enjoy.
